Malla Electrocinética #1Elias Crespin
Steel, lead, nylon, stepper motors, electronics, PC and software
The Mallas have the purpose of insinuating moving points, lines, surfaces and volumes, or, if preferred, to harmoniously place and remove these elements from space. Articulated steel rods weave a horizontal mesh with 64 nodes modulated by a computer connected to an equal number of stepper motors.
The spectator watches a dancing surface whose connection to mechanics or electronics is not obvious: The link is rather inferred than seen. The beauty of forms implies that technology is an instrument and not the goal.
